Cara Delevinge is a beautiful actress and fashion model that has always been known for having a very slender physique.
Cara is currently the face of Burberry and can be seen on the catwalk of some of the biggest fashion shows in the world. She is ranked one of the top 50 female models in the world and this no doubt puts a lot of pressure on her to have a thin body.
Putting on just 5 lbs. of excess fat is career suicide for Cara – so we were curious what type of diet and workout regimen Cara uses throughout the year to always stay so thin.
The answer may shock you. Cara actually eats fast food twice per week and even has a sweet tooth!
How in the world does a world class super model stay so thin throughout the year eating McDonalds and sweets? We are going to dive deep into Cara Delevigne’s diet plan in this article, check out her workout plan here!
Cara’s trainer says they practice balance throughout the year. It’s not about starving yourself to get to your dream weight. Its about staying healthy and fit throughout the year and maintaining your weight at a constant level.
Her trainer preaches the concept of momentum. He says “don’t ever lose momentum with your health and fitness. Get to your goal weight and then figure out how many calories and how much physical exercise it takes each week to maintain that weight.”
Cara’s trainer helped her figure out her regimen through a bit of trial and error. Cara tracks her daily calories on her phone through a free calorie counting app and makes sure that for each week she does not exceed an average of 1,400 calories per day.
This allows her great flexibility with her diet. Some days are easier than others, and if for example you only eat 1,100 calories on Monday, this means that you can eat up to 1,700 on Tuesday and still be at your average.
How The Super Model Stays So Lean and Mean Year Round
Cara also doesn’t follow any other guidelines except counting calories. Cara’s trainer explains that gaining body fat really only comes down to burning less calories than you are consuming. It doesn’t necessarily matter where those calories come from. Whether you are getting 2,000 calories from eating 10 chicken breasts and 10 cups of veggies per day or eating half a pizza per day – it won’t really matter when it comes to losing weight and staying thin.
Cara’s trainer says the thing that most people don’t realize is a lot of so called “health foods” are really high in calories. Take for example almond butter. Almond butter is touted as a health food but just 2 tbsp. of almond butter has 200 calories. A McDonalds soft serve vanilla ice cream cone has just 170 calories!
Obviously you have to pay attention to how you feel after you eat something – and if you are lactose intolerant you shouldn’t be eating a bowl of ice cream. Cara actually enjoys McDonalds ice cream and fries on a regular basis and still is able to maintain her super model weight.
When you know what your calorie baseline is – and you track your calories on your phone it makes it really easy to stay on point.
Another thing that Cara does every single day is take a powerful all natural metabolism booster to speed up her weight loss and resting metabolism. Cara’s trainer estimates that this all natural diet pill helps Cara burn an extra 100 calories each day.
While this may not seem like a lot – this really adds up by the end of the year. It takes 3,500 calories to burn 1 lb. of fat – so let’s do the match.
Burning an extra 100 calories per day comes out to 700 calories per week. Since there are 52 weeks in a year let’s do some quick math to figure out how many extra calories this is per year.
Total extra calories burned = 700 x 52 = 36,400.
36,400 extra calories burned /3,500 calories for 1 lb. of fat = 10.4 Lbs. of Fat Burned
So Cara burns an extra 10 lbs. of fat per year just from taking an all natural metabolism booster (Garcinia Cambogia). Not bad for just taking a pill twice per day! This also allows her to eat more calories and maintain her exact super model figure.
Cara has a few favorites that she consumes throughout the day to rack up her 1,400 calorie average. Let’s take a look at a sample day in the life of a Supermodel – taking you from breakfast all the way to a late night snack!
